Needed some comfort food to combat the stress this election is causing me!!! Could this cause the burning in my stomach.
I am taking 2 to 3 glasses of juice (at night on an empty stomach) which contain lots of green and also beetroot. for this article, great edification and lessons about Stomach Acid & Weak Digestion. Good substance. Long story short, when the intrinsic factor is low, so is the stomach acid in most cases, no matter many digestive enzymes or HCL you take. Hi Heather, I thought I would give you another cause of low stomach acid, that a lot of people sonâ€™t know about – low intrinsic factor.
And yet, it is something that very few people eat, much less juice. Since beet juice can stain your skin, wearing kitchen gloves is a good idea when handling beets. If your hands become stained during the cleaning and cooking process, simply rub some lemon juice on them to remove the stain. Obviously anything to help raise the flagpole would likely be considered a benefit. If you fall under this category, you may be even more interested in this health benefit of beet juice which some are alleging.
This discoloration of the urine, to red or pink, after eating beets is called beeturia. Itâ€™s caused by the betalain pigments in the beets, breaking down and being excreted. The stomach acid and the flora of the gut play an important role in breaking down the pigments in food, so if they are low or compromised you may experience beeturia.
If the juice was used in conjunction with nitroglycerin or similar drugs used to treat angina, a dangerous drop of blood pressure may occur. Using it with ED meds may also be problematic.
Beets and their juice contain enough inorganic nitrate to give athletes a performance edge. So encouraged were researchers by the magnitude of the blood pressure effect that they approached a Suffolk-based natural drinks company to produce a bottled beetroot juice that would make it easy for people to introduce the root into their diet. But, says Professor Ben Benjamin, a consultant in Acute Medicine at the Peninsula Medical School in Plymouth and member of the research team, it is beetroot’s capacity to absorb and store exceptionally high levels of nitrate that earns it the super-root title. Nitrates are nutrients found in soil which all plants need to build protein, and which the body harnesses in its battle against blood pressure. So how does beetroot work in the body?
Inside Men’s Health:
Also proBiotics (Culturelle Digestive Health ProBiotic), and DGL. I since have added L-glutamine powder in water (I weight lift), small amounts of raw honey, aloe juice, and EFA (Essential Fatty Acids liquid form). ITâ€™s gotten better mostly and yet I still have a bloated stomach, some coughing from reflux tho not nearly as bad as when it started, and feel like eating anything other than what I have been is a dangerous detour. I am married, 53-year old male 6 foot, 180 lb and very fit. It looks sometimes esp after a meal, like a I have a beer belly.
I lost around 10 kg, I eat small meals, try not to eat 3 hours before I got bed, I donâ€™t drink too much alcohol etc. I started going to the gym over a year ago, but was told to stop as it would only make things worse.
